Many are rather good and others seem to be a matter of simple common sense.

JAMA study”. As in depth as research is in letting us know how to lose weight or not gaining it in the first place, we all like easy to understand and simple ways to follow.

8 Ways To Trim The Weight

Turn off the T.V - Eating in front of the TV puts you into a mindless state where you become unaware as to how much your are eating. There are also studies that have shown it even reduces your metabolism while you watch. This of course again makes you more prone to weight gain.

No condiments - Besides the obvious reduction such as no mayonnaise or changing to low fat option. Another simple way to cut some calories is to cut out or reduce condiments. For instance putting ketchup or mustard on your food could add up to 50 to 80 calories per meal. This could increase your total by around 400 more calories a week.

Cutback on what you put in your coffee – A small change from a medium double double coffee to a medium regular is a difference of 120 calories. How easy was that? The removal of 1 cream and 1 sugar can save you 120 calories per cup. Now considering most people have two coffees a day that can be a total of 240 calories saved a day or 1680 calories a week!

Try kickboxing – The reason kickboxing was written is not only is it my favorite sport and fitness routine. But kickboxing also is said to be one of the best ways to burn calories beat only by long distance running and swimming. Some studies have said you can burn upwards of 900 calories a kickboxing session.

Take a walk after dinner – We all have heard how going for walk after dinner helps with the digestion of food. However I have yet to read any proof that supports this belief directly. What we have tested and do know according to Dawn Earnesty of Michigan State is that walking for 15 minutes after a meal may decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes. This is something you may wish to think about.

Aspartame – Although the debate on wither aspartame is healthy or not can go on forever. What we do know however is that aspartame contains only 2 grams of fat per teaspoon and is 0 calories. This makes it attractive to use for many people. However do consider your health and pro’s and cons of using v.s sugar as it seems studies are at odds with each other on it.

Eat more Fiber – It does feel silly to have to remind people about eating fiber and it’s benefits but people still are eating far less than they should be. Fiber is an essential nutrient and has lots of benefits, most notably it is said to promote digestion and reduce cholesterol. For this hub though the main thing we are promoting fiber for is its ability to make you feel more full for longer. Thus less likely to snack.

I hope you have read something that will help you to achieve your goals, and remember, when it's done right, it takes time.
